Surreal.

Hi, I'm Jessica!

About six months ago I discovered the world of fashion blogging via Chictopia. Some of you reading this may recognize me from there, as that's where I originally discovered your blogs and that's why I'm following you now. I probably won't add a link to my Chictopia until I start updating it again along with this blog. I've abandoned it recently because I've been wanting to start a blog of my own, something more personal and more in my control...and here I am! I figured the beginning of a new year was the perfect time to start.

After a few months on chictopia I found myself spending more time on the personal blogs of my favorite bloggers then on Chictopia itself. Not that I'm dissing Chictopia - I love it and will continue to use it; after all, it's what brought me here. BUT the more time I spent on those blogs the more I wanted one of my own. To do sharing of my own AND to be able to comment and participate in the more personal blogging world. So here I am. Many of you who I've begun following may not know I've been loyal reader for a while, and I'm so excited to finally be able to start giving you feedback and hopefully receiving some from you as well.

This time last year I wasn't aware of the fashion blogging community. I was simply a girl who loved clothes. Now I'm starting my own personal blog and on my way to earning a degree in Fashion and Interior Merchandising.

So, here goes. This is so surreal and I'm really exited to see what 2010 has in store for me.

(And I promise my next post will have style photos...)

Oh, and I'm really new to the whole layout/HTML sort of stuff so if you have any tips on how to improve my blog I'd love to hear them. Or anything else for that matter. I welcome all feedback/questions/etc. Leave a comment or contact me here!

Hi, Jessica! Congrats on starting your own blog! I see you are from Asheville? I've been wanting to visit there for a while now, I was going to see the Avett Brothers on New Years but we saw them in Baltimore instead. Good luck starting out your blog and thanks for the lovely comment :)
